2016 Kia K900 Buyer's Guide
The 2016 Kia K900 is a large luxury sedan with seating for five, the first in the brand’s lineup, and was first shown in late 2013. The K900 is significant because it represents a strong effort to elevate the brand above the budget-oriented entry-level fare on which Kia built its reputation. That said, the purpose of the K900 is still to undercut its luxury-class rivals on price. The Kia K900 borrows design elements and mechanical components from parent company Hyundai, including the V-8 engine, which was sourced from Hyundai’s Genesis. The K900 offers good fit and finish throughout, and it is a great value in its class. The Kia K900 was fully redesigned for the 2015 model year, and carries over mostly unchanged this year.
What makes it move?
The 2016 Kia K900 features a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that’s borrowed from the Hyundai Genesis. This engine makes 420 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque, and comes paired only to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The combination provides strong acceleration, good throttle input, and smooth shifts. The K900 is comfortable and handles well, but isn’t particularly athletic or agile. The Kia K900 is rear-wheel drive. Fuel mileage checks in at 15 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, which is lower than average for the class.
Why buy the 2016 Kia K900?
The 2016 Kia K900 is a great value for a luxury car. The K900 offers power comparable to luxury sedans from traditional luxury brands at a more competitive price. The K900’s drivetrain provides a satisfying driving experience, especially with highway cruising, and the K900 is comfortable and quiet, isolated from road noise. The styling is unlike other vehicles in the Kia lineup (and actually more closely resembles Hyundai’s offerings) which helps elevate the K900 above Kia’s more mainstream models. The Kia K900 is also recommended as a family sedan, thanks to its strong safety and reliability ratings. Luxury sedan shoppers on a budget, or those who want something a little different than the usual luxury brands’ offerings, should consider the 2016 Kia K900.
